Speedometer inop? Check.Fuel gauge not working? Check

Well I went out to my '08 MCS this morning to start it up and run some errands.Thing I didn't notice at first was the speedometer wasn't working since I use the one in the tach and the fuel gauge was stuck at 4 lights.I filled up my car the other day and only put 20 miles on it so it should have registered full or all lights lit.

So instead of running my errands I went to MINI service directly.Went for a quick test drive with the SA and he verified both not working even after repeatedly turning off and on the engine.He drove my car back to the MINI technician but he had already left for lunch(it was 12 PM).So I am now in a loaner car once again.

I've only had my car back for less then a week from my other warranty work done and now looks like more.UGH

My love for this car is slowly diminishing with experiencing multiple problems at under 6000 miles so far.

I am refraining from using the word "lemon" right now but.......
